Fabric Friday ( a few days late! )

I had this post in my brain on Friday....then Friday happened!  It was calm and relaxed until work got nuts and I forgot all about my blog post.  So, here I am, sitting in my hotel room Sunday night at almost midnight putting together this post.  Hope you enjoy!

This week's Fabric Friday is devoted to another on Cotton and Steel's amazing lines that should be on my doorstep Monday afternoon!  Spellbound is the first Halloween collection I have actually liked.  The colors are perfect together while not being spooky.  The mummies and spiderwebs are adorable.  Each spiderweb print has tiny spiders here and there in the design.  I just love it!  I purchased my bundle from Jen of Knotted Thread.  She has regular pop-up sales every Friday and had offered this one as a bundle with free shipping...the best deal!

While browsing IG one day, I came across this pattern being developed by Pile O' Fabric that is perfect for Spellbound.  I can't wait until the pattern is released!

Swap Progress - AMH Swap

I joined a couple of swaps a few months ago...before realizing that I am terrible at swaps.  The timelines are a mind game.  I always underestimate the time needed to actually follow through.  So, I'm finishing up these last 2 and taking a break from signing up for a while!

The one I have progress pics for is the Anna Maria Horner swap.  OF COURSE, I had to sign up for that one!!

Swap rules are that at least 3 progress pics are posted so that the swap mamas know you're working on it and aren't flaking out.  I pulled a random selection from my AMH cabinet (yes, I said cabinet, don't judge ;) and some Kona Glacier.  It's a lovely dark teal that does not photograph well at all.  This is pretty true to color, but the other pics I got make it look dark blue and it is not anywhere close to that.

Here is my mini in progress.  I need to do the quilting and of course the binding.  And I am terrible at making labels, so that always gets put off until the last minute.  But mailing date isn't for another month!  This whole mini measures about 21 inches which made me think of what it would look like as a whole quilt.

I used the app PicFrame to see what the block would look like as an entire quilt.  I am toying around with this idea!!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.  Happy WIP Wednesday!

Fabric Friday

It's Friday! YAY!!  Today I want to talk about the True Colors bundles that have come out in the last year.  If you are looking to build up your stash of basic colors while still having the unique style of certain beloved designers.  This is the last bundle I have purchased and probably the last one for a while.  I am TRYING to be more selective and less spendy.

My newest (and probably last for the summer) is the Tula Pink True Colors bundle.  I ordered a FQ bundle from one of my favorite online fabric shops, Knotted Thread.  Jen is wonderful to work with and has pop-up sales on Instagram @knotted_thread every Friday (dangerous!).  I snagged this one last Friday for a great deal!

The colors are vibrant and I love the designs.  Not just plain janes, but unique to Tula Pink and an homage to her previous beloved lines.
